It is written in a playful narrative and explores the idea of a house built on a tesseract. It is really helpful for anyone trying to imagine in the fourth dimension and helps explain what it would physically be like to travel along a hypercube's curve.

Somehow I ended up reading this thanks to TV tropes, and I don't even know why. It's a short story about an architect that creates a house in the shape of a tessaract, or a 4th dimensional shape, and then takes his friend and friend's wife to see it. Things go kind of pear shaped when they realize it's not so easy to just leave the house, and that a house with the shape of a tessaract is not so easy to navigate. Eventually, they get out, but then there's a new problem. It's a fun short story.
Feels dated, but it was written in , so that would be why. I had trouble wrapping my head around the tessaract shape, so I looked it up, and then things made more sense. Still, fun short read.

Of all science fiction, I appreciate most those stories which incorporate otherwise abstract concepts in mathematics as key story elements. This short tale explores the higher dimensional geometry of hypercubes through the ambitious project of a young architect looking to make his mark on the aesthetics of his field.

Other than the fact that reality will collapse in on itself and the entirety of existence will, well, cease to exist, I honestly can't see no reason why an architect shouldn't save land cost by building a tesseract house.

So dated, which just adds to its appeal, if you ask me. Nov 28, Ray Daley rated it liked it. I was quite far into this before I realised I had read it before, still enjoyable though.

I was well out of my depth with understanding this on a deep level, but it was still fun and a cool read, nonetheless.

Feb 26, NickyQoo rated it really liked it Shelves: sci-fi , short-stories. Just the cliche stereotypical role of Mrs. Bailey irritated me. Other than that it's wonderful. Jun 03, Frank rated it it was ok Shelves: mind-breaking. Well overall good, this story seemed to fail me with it's imagery and thought process. The idea there's a tesseract house is interesting, but it doesn't seem like it was the intended design for the main character.
And in addition the house itself is confusing in a way that could be made far clearer.
Heinlein is a master at times describing complex objects or theories. His other short stories are great. But this one seems to have fell flat on me. Amazon Kindle 0 editions. Audible 0 editions. CD Audiobook 0 editions.
